Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

Meeting Description: This international conference dedicated to Colonial and Postcolonial Linguistics is going to take place at the University of Bremen September 3-8, 2013. It will be organised by the Creative Unit Language in Colonial Contexts under the leadership of Prof. Dr. Thomas Stolz and Prof. Dr. Ingo H. Warnke.

This international meeting brings together scholars of various backgrounds who study the relationship of language and colonialism. The goal of the conference is to initiate a new interdisciplinary research program that explores how language is affected by colonial and postcolonial conditions and how colonial and postcolonial constellations of facts are reflected, shaped and negotiated by language. Linguistics, cultural studies, anthropology, history, political science and other disciplines are invited to contribute to this project.
